SQUARE-ANGLE – Budapest



The earth tilted, borders are being drawn in sharp angles by black ink, the purple shade of a scarf, perhaps, on top of the strict lines. If above me, if below, like an island in the sky. I live here. Budapest. Forrai Ferenc’s series.

146 years ago, in 1873 on the 17th of November Buda, Óbuda, and Pest united. 

Jékely Zoltán

BUDAPESTHEZ

„S mind nősz időben s térben magasabbra,
hatalmasodsz a síkon s halmokon;
nagy éjszakánkban tündökölsz, harapva
a vak homályt, mint tengeri torony;
vigyázz, milyen fényt szórsz e földdarabra!
S e roppant morgás: ezrek lihegése,
rohangáló robotja úgy szakad
össze egyetlen vad dörömbölésbe,
mint zengő tengerbe a sok patak,
s e zúgásnak nincs kezdete, se vége.”

1937

SQUARE-ANGLE
Square-angle is a symbol of togetherness. The belonging and identity of nations is presented by the unique code system of the series formed by shapes and colors through the literature of the Visegrad countries. Citizens, four times: Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest. Four cities, four colors, one section. Making four cities of four countries four-angled; a common conglomerate.

The latest parts of Square-angle released on HYPEANDHYPER are about Budapest.
